This gadget is cheap, but at 1150mAh, it is way underpowered compared to similar products that usually have 2000 or 4000mAh. Also, the dimensions are huge. That's more than double the size of some products that have double the capacity of this one. A big clunky battery is going to be very uncomfortable sitting in your pocket connected to your phone.

My guess is the dimension is the size of the container. The charger should be fairly small according to a review on Amazon. It won't charge your iPad but should be fine for your smartphone during a long flight.

I don't know about that. A lot of smartphones batteries are over 2000mAh these days. This thing will charge your phone half way (if it is really efficient). I am extremely dubious that this thing will get you across the Pacific, or even just across the Atlantic.

The 1150mAh is at 5V. I believe smartphone batteries are at a lower voltage so mAh is not an apple to apple comparison.
A typical smartphone can play video 6-8 hours continuously. If this thing can charge your phone half way, it will extend it to 9-12 hours. Even longer when you are in airplane mode. Besides, nothing prevents you from carrying multiple of these chargers.
